EIZO Corporation announced that its manufacturing facility earned Gold status from the Responsible Business Alliances’ (RBA) Validated Assessment Program (VAP) audit.
The Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) is the world's largest industry coalition of more than 200 companies dedicated to corporate social responsibility in global supply chains. The RBA has established a code of conduct that requires companies and their supply chains to ensure safe working conditions, respectful and dignified treatment of workers, corporate responsibility for the environmental impact of their operations, and ethical conduct of business. EIZO joined the RBA in January 2020 with the aim of promoting sustainability in its global supply chain, and further strengthening its own sustainability initiatives while referring to the RBA Code of Conduct.
Validated Assessment Program (VAP) audit is conducted by an RBA-accredited auditing organization to verify and assess compliance with the RBA Code of Conduct through document inspections, facility visits, and employee interviews. Organizations are awarded Platinum (200 points), Gold (180 points or more), or Silver (160 points or more) status based on the evaluation.
In November 2023, the EIZO Corporation headquarters factory underwent a VAP audit and received a score of 196.8, achieving Gold status. This demonstrates not only EIZO’s compliance with the RBA Code of Conduct, but also EIZO’s commitment to its sustainability initiatives, including social, environmental, and ethical responsibilities, such as environmental friendliness, respect for human rights, and creating a work environment where employees can work with enthusiasm.
The EIZO Group Principles of Conduct were established to realize the corporate philosophy of “Enriching people’s work and lives through imaging solutions.” In addition to solving social issues through products, EIZO will continue to maintain and improve sustainability throughout the global supply chain.
